    ID that Turtle ( Challenge No. 5 )

    There was one at an educational aquarium here (now closed) in Grand Junction. They called it a Hog Nose for short. They said it came from Vietnam. Same size as the one you're showing. It had a very large tank to swim in.

    I shouldn't have favorites, but if I were forced to choose, it would be a marginated. Just love their size, personality, and needs.

    Help what is wrong with my tortoise.

    Males are smaller than the females. That's normal. But this little guy hasn't had the proper environment. So glad he's in your care now.

    The markings in the center look like bones. You could name it Bones.
